Film on attitudes to food waste in China


Hingman Leung’s thesis for her MA in the Royal Roads Intercultural and International Communication program is a short film on attitudes towards food and food waste in China called No Doggy Bag Please.  The immense amount of food waste in China has become a hot topic over the last two years due to increasing appetites, shrinking landfills, and Chinese cultural values informed by a deep culinary history. 

No Doggy Bag Please will screen September 1 at the University of Waterloo’s Faculty of Environment, followed by a discussion on food waste in the contexts of social and environmental activism and policy-making. More information about the screening is available on Facebook.
